I recently came across a quote I love:
"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination"
The site I found this on claimed it was Jimmy Dean who said this, and though I'm not a conisseur of his food (nor was I aware who he was prior to writing this post), I found this to be totally relatable, especially after hearing speakers such as Eva Chen and Sophia Amoruso talk about the ups and downs of their journeys into the fashion world during the Lucky FABB conference this past weekend. I'm constantly getting annoyed by things out of my control, and instead of focusing on things I can control myself, I worry about the wrong things. After hearing that Eva Chen gets rude feedback to this day (despite being the Editor in Chief of Lucky Magazine), I realized that negativity never stops, but you can certainly stop listening to it- which is always the best thing to do, because why would you let others control how you feel about yourself?
